The woman was airlifted to hospital where she is now fighting for life.

Police have launched an investigation but say they’re not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident.

A local resident, who didn't know the family personally, laid flowers outside the home on Saturday morning.

“I just live in the area, we heard what happened and we felt that we needed to lay flowers,” she told the Herald Sun.
